Project Description

Applicants are invited for a fully funded 3-year full time PhD studentship to start as soon as possible. This studentship covers tuition fees and a tax free stipend for UK/EU students only.
The project will aim to develop bioelectronic sensors by utilising taste receptor proteins equipped with electrochemical transducers for taste sensing on pharmaceutical formulations.
The successful candidate should have at least an upper second class BSc degree and a good MSc degree in pharmaceutical science, engineering, biotechnology, material science or a related subject. Research background or industrial experience in developing biosensors would be desirable. The project is funded by a Pharmaceutical and Biotechnology company.

The successful applicant will be based in the Division of Molecular Therapeutics and Formulation, School of Pharmacy at The University of Nottingham and join an excellent research environment with over 200 PhD students and 50 Post-doctoral researchers in the School. There are two EPSRC Doctorial Training Centres in the School funded by the UK funding body and international pharmaceutical companies (AstraZeneca, GSK, Pfize, Boots etc) and a BBSRC Doctorial Training Partnership at the University level. We have very significant resources available to support this research and provide world-class training for the student.

For informal enquiries, or further information on how to apply please send a CV with contact details of two academic referees to Dr Zheying Zhu ([Email Address Removed]).
